Tomato and Brie Tart

Tomato and Brie Tart - Best Vegetarian Puff Pastry Pie Recipes

Total time: 1 hour

Ingredients

  • 1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed
  • 4 heirloom tomatoes, sliced thin into half or round moons
  • 225g of brie wheel, sliced into 1/8-inch thin planks
  • 1 tbsp sliced chives
  • All-purpose flour
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Kosher salt
  • Basil leaves and balsamic glaze

Recipe

Step 1: Heat your oven to about 2000C. Dust a flat work surface with flour and roll puff pastry into a 14” x 10” rectangle. It should be about 1/8-inch thick.

Step 2: Place the pastry on a baking sheet and use a knife to map out a ½-inch border around its edges. Freeze for about 15 minutes until firm.

Step 3: While that is happening, lay your sliced tomatoes on paper towel-lined plates. Let them sit for 10 minutes to remove as much moisture as possible. You can change the paper towels intermittently once they are too wet. Blot the top of the tomatoes as well, if necessary.

Step 4: Once the puff pastry is firm, arrange the sliced brie evenly across the puff pastry, leaving the ½-inch border uncovered. Top the brie with the tomatoes. You can let them overlap.

Step 5: Bake for about 25 minutes until the cheese is melted and the puff pastry is golden and puffed.

Step 6: Take it out and allow it to cool for a minute or two, then season it with pepper and sprinkle chives on it. Drizzle the balsamic glaze on it and top it with the basil leaves.

Total time: 55 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 sheet of ready-rolled puff pastry, about 320g
  • 2 tbsp of fruity cranberry sauce

  • Fresh sprigs of rosemary
  • 1 egg, beaten

Step 2: Lay it on the baking sheet and score a smaller circle, with a 6cm radius, in the middle but do not cut all the way through. Then use a sharp knife to divide the smaller circle into 8 wedges (the circle should still be intact).

Step 3: Spread the cranberry sauce over the outer circle and top it with the potato slices and cheese.

Step 4: Take one edge from the center star and bring it over the filling while you bring the outer edge inward. Press them together and repeat the process until you have a wreath.

Step 6: Take it out of the oven and decorate it with rosemary sprigs.

Danish Delights

Danish Delights - Best Vegetarian Puff Pastry Pie Recipes

Total time: 50 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 sheet of ready-rolled puff pastry
  • 100g of cream cheese
  • 100g of fresh raspberries
  • 1 tbsp of caster sugar
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract

Recipe

Step 1: Heat oven to 2000C. Unroll your pastry sheet and use a knife to divide it into two halves, cutting down the long side. Then, cut each side into three squares and place them on a baking tray.

Step 2: Mix the cream cheese with vanilla extract and sugar and use a teaspoon to gently scoop the mixture into the middle of each square.

Step 3: Cut a border around each square, about 1cm away from the edge but do not cut all the way through. Every side should be cut halfway in from each pointy end, leaving about 1cm of the pastry attached.

Step 4: Bring the dangling cut-out parts from each side into the middle of the square; each should form a “u.” Sit a raspberry over the point where they all meet and press down so the pastry seal together and stays in place. Next, place a raspberry over the exposed edges of each square.

Step 5: Bake for about 20 minutes until the pastry rises and is lightly golden. Allow to cool completely before serving.

  • 1 sheet of puff pastry
  • 250g of fresh rhubarb
  • 100ml of fresh whipped cream
  • 20g of castor sugar
  • Fresh vanilla pod, deseeded
  • Icing sugar

  • 1 egg, beaten

Recipe

Step 1: Preheat your oven to 2000C and peel and cut rhubarb into your desired size. Put it in a pan and add the sugar, vanilla seeds, and a few drops of water. Poach the mixture on a stove to warm it and remove it from the heat.

Step 2: Unroll the puff pastry sheet and cut it into 5 rectangles. Then use a knife to score multiple lines on each rectangle diagonally.

Step 3: Place it on a heavy baking sheet and apply egg wash. Then place another heavy baking sheet on it to stop the pastry from rising.

Step 4: Bake in the oven until golden brown and crispy. Take them out of the oven and cut each into two halves, to form a base and top, like you are creating a bagel.

Step 5: Allow to cool, and dust the ones for the top with icing sugar. Then, place a drop of cream at the center of a plate and place one base pastry on it. The flat side, without the diagonal stripes, should face up.

Step 6: Apply a cream line on it, arrange a few pieces of rhubarb over it, and cover it with the top pastry. You can garnish it with the dried vanilla pod. For aesthetics, add one small sprig of baby basil.
